Tabu, an actress known for giving hits such as Maqbool (2003), Cheeni Kum(2007), Chandni Bar(2001) and more, has been able to thrive in Bollywood for almost three decades because of her captivating performances. The actress’ screen presence can spellbind anyone. Her honesty with the character she plays is what makes her fans admire her so much. Tabu never limited herself to just Hindi movies. The actress has also appeared in English, Tamil, Malayalam, Telugu, and Bengali language films.
Recently, in an interview with DNA, when asked about the openness of today’s actors towards out-of-the-box characters, Tabu said, “Actually, in the past five years, interesting stories have started coming up. Actors are getting exciting parts to play, which are not uni-dimensional. They are not being offered what a typical hero or heroine would get to do. I’m sure they are enjoying all that’s been offered to them.”
She added by saying, “They’re a confident lot and are open to expressing and experimenting. It isn’t really experimenting because everything is much more acceptable now than it was 20 years back. At that time, you would feel that certain roles are risky, but now it’s become the norm.”
